LPN Staff Nurse, Gallipolis, OH - July 14, 2016
This would be a decent job if it was organized better. Never got to talk to anybody on the phone because 99% of the communication was through email. Orientation was not properly prepared. It was hard to follow sometimes because it was listening by telephone call and following the speaker by computer. A lot of times I had missing papers in the packet. When out in the field orientating, I was never checked off on skills that was often seen in most visits, which was wound vacs and catheter changes so I couldn't see those patients. Every time it would put my schedule below the minimum 5 that I was required to see each day and sometimes the scheduler in Dayton wouldn't even give me the minimum (which I was told if I didn't see at least 5 clients a day for each missing visit it would be deducted out of my PTO and never did I have any time built up). Documentation was completed through a cell phone that they provide. It was a nightmare to get the hang of especially when you're asking the client's life history during every visit and having to document the same information 2-3 times in different places. On labs you couldn't just drop it off at a facility and leave. You had to take a picture of the lab slip and specimens then send it to 2-3 people in the office by email.
